60 seconds with LeftMedia
Monday, February 9, 2015
After years of working as sole traders, LeftMedia was established in 2014, when Mitchel White joined forces with fellow creative Matt Simpson to combine their design and print offerings, which they had been running separately. Since then the business has grown significantly.
